Conway hires familiar face to lead Lady Tigers’ hoops

Conway High School has chosen a familiar face to direct its varsity girls’ basketball program.

Tymesha Hosch, who served as an assistant coach under Shamae Hemingway, was given the reins to the program Monday. Hemingway resigned this past summer to become an assistant principal at Myrtle Beach High School.

“I’m excited,” Hosch said. “I’m looking forward to it. I’m excited to see where we’ll go. We just want to focus on working hard and developing good habits. We want to be a fundamentally sound team.”

According to CHS athletics director Marion Shaw, Hosch is an ideal choice for the job. He said she, like Hemingway, is a firm believer in excellent athletics and academics.

“She’s been working with the basketball program since 2012,” Shaw said. “She believes in the fundamentals and I think she is an excellent fundamentals teacher. She’s an excellent teacher in the classroom. I think she’s a good motivator. I’m looking forward to working with her. I think she’s a good fit for the girls because they know her.”

Hosch played prep basketball at Winder-Barrow High School in Winder, Ga. She played collegiately at Voorhees College in Denmark, S.C.

Hosch is a 17-year educator, and has taught math at Conway High School since 2012. She was an assistant junior varsity coach for the Tigers in 2012-13, and served as head jayvee coach in 2013- 14. She has been a varsity assistant ever since.

“I can’t say enough about Shamae,” Hosch said. “I learned a lot from her. Seeing where the program was and where she took it was exciting. Being a part of the program with Shamae was definitely rewarding.”

Hosch wants to build a program the school and community can take pride in.

“I just feel like Conway is one of those teams that are underdogs,” she said. “Knowing me and what to expect is a plus. We do some things with our girls. If the grades aren’t up to par, you can’t play. They are student-athletes first.”

Hosch believes in giving back, and wants her team to serve the community it represents when opportunities such as Hurricane Florence and the flooding it produced present themselves.

“We want to focus on giving back, volunteering and doing some things for the community and letting them know we care,” she said. “We are a part of the community. We want to graduate good basketball players who are also good people.”

Hosch is a member of Cherry Hill Missionary Baptist Church and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

“I want Conway High School to be a training ground for college basketball players,” she said. “I want to prepare girls for the next level. If it’s something they want to do, I want to make sure they’re prepared.”
